VRS benefits from Whitefield Great Day of Service

Vision Rehabilitation Services of Georgia extends a big “THANK YOU” to Whitefield Academy and the great work completed at the office this past Saturday, August 26th.  Whitfield Academy students and parents revamped the flower beds are VRS entrance as part of their Great Day of Service.

Picture of the Whitefield GroupWhitefield launched Whitefield Great Day of Service just this month.  They shared “This event is centered on coming together as a Pack and starting off the school year with a focus on “others ahead of self.””  When asked “Why is Whitefield starting a Great Day of Service?”  They responded, “We want to create a way for the entire Whitefield community to come together as a family and focus on “others ahead of self” as we start a new school year. There’s no better way to center our hearts and minds on Christ than to serve others! Our goal is to make this an annual tradition at the beginning of each school year.”
“VRS is blessed by their service and have a partnership of many years with Whitfield Academy.  They did a beautiful job on the flowers and we are most appreciative” Sharon Croyle, VRS CEO/Executive Director, stated.

VRS Diabetes Support Group Put the Pedal to Metal at Cycle Élan

Cycle Élan gave VRS Diabetes Support Group and staff a warm welcome during their beginner’s cycling class June 22, 2017. VRS enjoyed a private 30-minute high-energy cycling class complete with great music and lots of motivation from the instructor, April. Each client was provided a cycle that tracked their progress, displayed their speed, distance traveled and more.  April encouraged everyone to work at their own pace but not be afraid to push themselves. Everyone seemed to push themselves not only to complete the 30 minutes but to increase their tension levels and speeds.  Assan, another Cycle Élan instructor, cruised the studio to ask each client how they were doing and to encourage them to do what felt comfortable.  VRS client, Derrick Whitaker, felt comfortable cycling at high speed and high tension. He breezed through the cycling class with ease, earning the longest distance of all the cyclists. Admittedly, Derrick spends a lot of time at the gym and had a clear advantage over those who were not as experienced.  He was an inspiration to all to really put the petal to the metal.

After 30 minutes, the Diabetes Support Group accumulated several miles of distance and burned a major amount of calories. After class, Cycle Élan provided cold eucalyptus-scented towels to help cool body temperatures. After blood sugar levels were checked, the class enjoyed some snacks and conversation about how much fun the class was.  Everyone seemed pleased with their progress and encouraged to engage in a fitness routine.

Some even said they would return to Cycle Élan for more classes.  Why not? The facilities, instructors, classes and hospitality were great!  VRS would like to extend a big thank you to Cycle Élan for welcoming the VRS Diabetes Support Group and helping to inspire to get the wheels moving toward fitness.
